Experience Gifts for Kids

Experience gifts are presents that provide the recipient with an experience as opposed to a material thing.

Most people assume that giving someone a physical present is better than a one-off experience. The former will last longer, they assume, whereas the latter will soon be forgotten.

But research shows otherwise. New things – that is, physical objects – are often interesting and exciting when we first receive them but soon fade into the background of our every day lives.
